IRS Announces the Quarterly Interest Rates

WASHINGTON - The Internal Revenue Service today announced that interest rates for the calendar quarter beginning April 1, 1993, will remain at six percent for overpayments, seven percent for underpayments, and nine percent for large corporate underpayments.

Under the Tax Reform Act of 1986, the rate of interest is determined on a quarterly basis. The rate on underpayments is one percent higher than the rate on overpayments, and the rate for large corporate underpayments is two percent higher than the rate on underpayments. The rate announced today is computed from the federal short-term based on daily compounding determined during January 1993.
